Darn. I thought I had that slide layout just right, but there’s a little extra space that I want to use. Maybe if I raise the text in the body to 15-point and the heading to 37-point. click, click, click, click, click… not quite. Maybe 16 and 38. click, click, click, click, click…
I wish there was an easier way . . . BAM! There is! I learned this tip in an episode of the Shukes & Giff Podcast (named for the hosts, Kim Pollishuke & Jen Giffen). Select the text box (or multiple textboxes 🤯) and press ⌘ + Shift + . and it’ll increase all of the text by 1-point. Just keep going until you get to the perfect size. Need to make it smaller? Replace that . with a , (by the way, I’m sure that they were selected because they’re > and <, but anyhow…). It’s a handy little trick to get your layout just right. (post continues below GIF)
And then I wondered . . . does this work in Docs!? Yup. Highlight the text and use the same keyboard shortcuts (double 🤯). (post continues below GIF)
Drawings!? Yup (triple 🤯). (post continues below GIF)
What about Sheets!? Nope. Sorry. Don’t push it.
